Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Norman Powell (fractured left foot) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Suns. Powell has been making strides in his recovery, and the hope was that he would be able to return at some point this week. His status being upgraded to doubtful means that there is a chance that he'll be able to go on Wednesday, albeit a small one. The Clippers finish their season with a Saturday/Sunday back-to-back, so if Powell can't play on Wednesday then he'll likely make his return against either the Kings or Thunder.
Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Deandre Ayton scored 22 points to go with 13 rebounds, two assists, and one block as the Suns beat the Lakers 121-110 on Tuesday night. Ayton made quick work of the Lakers on Tuesday, as he did his damage in just 27 minutes. He has now double-doubled in three of his last four games, and he grabbed at least 12 rebounds in four-straight games. Tuesday's win also marked the Suns' 63rd win, which was a franchise record, and they will have three more chances to add to that total in the regular season. The first of those three will be the Clippers on night two of a back-to-back on Wednesday.
